Teaching Students With Emotional Disorders

OnDemand Webinar (88 minutes)

Learn tips and strategies for handling emotional behavior disorders in the classroom.Are you working with students who have complex emotional and behavioral problems? Are you struggling to find effective interventions for your students? If you are working with students with challenging behaviors and don't know what you should do, this topic is for you. With the complexity of the needs of students in today's schools, it can be challenging to determine why children are behaving the way they are. It may be related to trauma, anxiety, peer pressure, or escape from inappropriate academic expectations. Whatever the reason, we have to pinpoint it so we can meet the needs of the student. Behavior is communication and we, as educators, have to determine what children are trying to communicate, why they are behaving the way they are, and then develop a positive behavior intervention plan based on that functional assessment. Through a good functional behavior assessment, we can then determine what behavior interventions will be appropriate for the student.
